KIM KARDASHIAN LOVES NASCAR

Many Hollywood types keep their NASCAR passion to themselves. Last 
week one of NASCAR's most die-hard, rabid, dyed-in-the-wool fans, Kim Kardashian, outed herself. Kardashian's secret love affair with stock cars is the stuff of legend in Hollywood gossip circles.

SHELBY AMERICAN ODDS

Joe Gibbs owes me a big hug.I wrote the entire column. Had the pictures ready to send. Even tried to justify why Joey Logano had a chance of winning. Then the screen went blank.If that’s not a sign I should bolt on my initial predictions for the 2010 Shelby American in Las Vegas, I don’t know what is. For those keeping track, I’m down $100 fake dollars, having failed to pick Jimmie Johnson because I didn’t think the odds were right. Heaven forbid the Roush cars that wo ...
